From the sermon below:
“‘Are you the one?’ John the Baptist asked. ‘Or do we need to wait for another?’
I can understand this question John asked. I can see the prison walls around me. That we build up with violence, war, and poverty. I see Newtown and Columbine. I see apartheid South Africa, and oppression and racism that exists today. I see hunger amongst us, hurting people in our pews. I see my own heart, my own failures, and the hurt that I cause. I see the times when I’ve failed to love God the way I should, or participated in the unjust systems. I can see the walls, and they are thick, and they are strong. And I can ask too, ‘How long must we wait?'”
